    If I want to be sure to have the box at AoA by 10/8/12 via FedX, when do I need to send it out? Just not sure how many days to allow shipping from SE PA to AoA? thanks!

    There is a section on fedex.com that will give you an estimate on price and delivery.

    I just went and made a 10lb 12x12x12 package shipping from 19440 to 32830 as if i was shipping it today.. here are the prices..

    Wed Oct 3, 2012 3:00 PM FedEx Standard Overnight® 103.06
    Thu Oct 4, 2012 10:30 AM FedEx 2Day® A.M. 55.10
    Thu Oct 4, 2012 4:30 PM FedEx 2Day® 47.90
    Fri Oct 5, 2012 4:30 PM FedEx Express Saver® 32.01
    End of day(2 Business Days) FedEx Ground® 12.55


    I dont know what the ground is for sure, i dont know if it is guaranteed or not, but imo 2 business days would be thursday PM for less then their saver.. perhaps someone that uses fedex can comment on that..

    I just sent a box from MN to CSR. I used the Fed Ex site and ground was three days. I sent it about a week and a half before we left and it made it there in 3 days as stated (sent on Thursday, arrived on Tuesday, we checked in on Saturday). Our box was 30 pounds, and cost about $30 to ship ground...certainly cheaper than checking another bag! :thumbsup2
